Russia: Budenovsk, Borovsk Perform Missile-Firing Exercise


Caspian Flotilla (CF) missile boats Budenovsk and Borovsk headed by Capt 3 rank Vsevolod Vodnev and Capt Lt Mikhail Stepanov destroyed “enemy” surface ships during the mock battle.

Towed targets imitating surface ships were destroyed at the range of 60 km by accurate missile strikes delivered by antiship missile system Termit.

To ensure safety of civil vessels, 20 CF surface ships patrolled 2,600 sq meters of the naval range.
